Greg Casar is the son of Mexican immigrants, a labor and community organizer, and the youngest person ever elected to the Austin City Council. On Council, he’s passed policies to disrupt mass incarceration and mass deportation, protect Planned Parenthood, end inexcusable tax breaks for the wealthiest, and protect residents from being pushed out of their homes by out-of-state investors. He's the sponsor of Austin's paid sick days law that the Austin American Statesman called, "the most progressive local labor policy in Texas and the American South."
Through his work, Casar has added investments in District 4’s parks, transportation, and infrastructure, which for decades was neglected.
Most of all, Casar is proud to showcase what community-focused representation can accomplish.
